This year (2013) is a special season at Cordova Dragway Park as the O'Reilly Auto Parts World Series of Drag Racing will be the first 60th anniversary event in drag racing. With that a special logo of celebration has been developed.

The World Series of Drag Racing that began in 1953 in Lawrenceville, Illinois moved to Cordova Dragway Park, Cordova, Illinois in 1956 as it's permanent home. "We are very fortunate to be celebrating 60 years of the oldest continuous drag race in the World and take that responsibility very seriously" said Scott Gardner. The 60th event will again raise the bar on quality drag racing entertainment and the unique character and style of the World Series event.

Negotiations are continuing on bringing in some great race drivers and cars including stars of the World Series of yesteryear. "With an event so rich in heritage and history is difficult to determine who should be showcased, as so many high profile drivers and crew chiefs participated at the World Series" continued Gardner.

Be sure to make plans to attend this historical event on August 23-25, 2013.
